Cuffed Boys Pants by Whimsy Couture

Standard

Hello All,

My name is Rachel. I work full time as a Capital Asset Clerk and I have been sewing for many years. I enjoy sewing, machine embroidery and crafting and try to do these as much as possible.

Cuffed Boys Pants by Whimsy Couture Sewing Patterns

I am excited to review the Cuffed Boys Pants pattern by Whimsy Couture Sewing Patterns. This pattern is intended to be used with woven cotton, chambray, lightweight denims, corduroy and flannel.  This tutorial is very thorough and detailed with  step by step photos. This pattern is designed for all sewing levels and I feel would be very easy for a beginner sewer to follow.

Cuffed Boys Pants Pattern

 

The tutorial and pattern downloaded and printed easily. All the pattern pieces lined up perfectly and are clearly marked for each size.  The pattern contains a list of required materials, list of suitable fabrics and the seam allowance needed.  It also has a sizing chart that  shows  inseam measurements as well as the amount of fabric needed for each piece.  A large range of sizes are included in this pattern: NB – 10.  You will be able to use this pattern for years.  The cuff on these pants is not only for a visual aspect, it also provides extra leg length once the pants would normally get too short. The pockets on these pants are large and deep so your little boy could put all kinds of treasures in them. These pants have an elastic waist.

I made these pants for my grandson and embroidered him a shirt to match. He loves Thomas the train so I tried to choose the colors from the train.  I love the way these pants fit and look on him. The only thing I plan to do different is to make the crotch longer. My grandson is taller than most kids his age and these pants were a little tight in the crotch. I love the fact that this pattern is so easy to make and doesn’t take much time at all. I have ordered fabric to make two more pair. One pair for my grandson and another pair to put on my Etsy site. I also plan to embroidery a Fall design on shirts to match them.

 

Aside

I attended FiberFest in Plaquemine Louisiana this weekend and Friday I took a needle tatting class. I definitely need a lot more practice with that but its something that I want to learn.  Saturday, I took a Rug Punch class that Lisanne from P is for Primitive in Canton Mississippi was teaching.  I did a Gingerbread Boy Pillow and managed to finish it last night.  I also bought the Gingerbread Girl Kit and plan to start on it today and then I want to do the Santa Pillow that I bought a long time ago.

Mickey Mouse Towels

My daughter redid my grandson’s bath in Mickey Mouse so I did these towels on my embroidery machine to coordinate with the other items she used and the bath turned out amazing. They really did a great job. The Mickey Mouse designs are appliques and were purchased from an Etsy shop called “FindmeonFBplease” and they turned out wonderful.

30 Things to Stop Doing to Yourself.

I had to share this one.  I wish I had realized some of these points when I was younger.  It took quite a few Anxiety medications and therapy for me to realize some of this.  I am going to find the books mentioned in this  and read them.  I weeded out all the negativity in my life and now I focus more on family, friends, and sewing projects instead of the things in life that I cannot control.

Thomas the Train

Standard

My grandson loves trains and Thomas the Train is his favorite character so I put Thomas on this long-all last night for him.  I cannot wait for him to see it tomorrow. The design is from GLStitchStudio on Etsy. and the outfit is from Whimsical Wears Embroidery Blanks.
